  • Marines battle the elements with SERE

    Imagine the most miserable, cold weather conditions Mother Nature could throw at you.

    The 366th Fighter Wing is located in the middle of nowhere in southern Idaho, nearly an hour away from a large city. Not exactly the description of a place one would expect military forces from every U.S. service and foreign allies would be excited to visit.

  • Gunfighter Priority #1: Generate F-15 Sorties

    When I established our number one priority for the 366th Fighter Wing, I could have said "Fly Fighters!" It's bold and looks great on a bumper sticker. I think it falls far short of the real story. After all, military and civilian organizations all over the world fly fighters. What makes us different...what makes us better: Gunfighters Generate F-15 Sorties.
  • A T-Bolt's last ride

    In April the 389th Fighter Squadron "Thunderbolts" returned here from a six-month deployment in Southwest Asia. As the 20 or so F-15E Strike Eagles taxied in from the runway, the first to come to a stop was that of 389th FS Commander, Lt. Col. Gary Marlowe. He and approximately 500 airmen from the 389th FS, 389th Aircraft Maintenance Unit and other support units spent their time overseas in support of Operation Inherent Resolve.
